This bridge is a great piece of work and the history it plays in the town over the years is fun to learn. It is worth a view from the walls or if it is a great sunny day...a walk down to.

This is an unusual construction and is a typical tourist (stop here for a photo opp and move on) attraction.The immediate surroundings need a lot of TLC including the removal of junk and grafitti. I get the feeling that being outside the city, RothenburgODT is not responsible for it and whatever authority is responsible for upkeep cannot afford to do... More

We actually traveled across the bridge to get to our bed and breakfast, so this was much less out of our way than it would be for most people. This is probably a 10-15 minute walk from the center of town. The bridge is likely 150 feet (at least) below the level of the town. Therefore, the walk there won't... More

I did not walk down to this bridge, but it was lovely to look down into the valley at it from above.

We entered Rothenburg on the back roads and rounded a corner to find this amazing structure with the city perched above - what a great photo moment!

the walk form the castle gardens is very nice, giving you another angle to the old town, but the actual bridge does not have any special appeal.

This is a hike for returning visitors as well as those looking for a little excersise. While relatively unremarkable, the sense of history below the ancient city walls gives one a sense of what potential attackers faced, an uphill battle if ever there was one... only to be greeted by arrows and hot oil pouring out of the city gates.

The walk back up(UP) hill is well worth a stroll to the bridge. It is a very large span similar to Roman aqueducts. Cars and trucks drive over it daily.

You can easily do Rothenburg in an afternoon providing the weather is good. I have happy memories of the place as I spent a month there over 20 years ago learning German at the Goethe Center. However, its attractions pall very quickly as it is very small and I would not recommend anyone to stay more than one night unless... More

We visited Rothenburg on our trip south from Berlin in September 2010. We only had an afternoon to visit so we did not get to see sll the many museums and attractions that are available. I was enraptured by the entire experience. It was like stepping back into medieval Bavarian Germay in the 12th century. The town began in 900.... More
